Whitstable Town have been drawn at home to Ebbsfleet United in the second round of the FA Trophy.

Nicky Southall's side have come through seven games to reach this stage and now they have the chance to knock out the 2008 winners.

Whitstable, 19th in Ryman League Division 1 South, are 62 places below the Fleet in the non-league pyramid but they have already sprung some big upsets in the Trophy this season.

They won 2-1 at Hendon on Sunday, a second successive Ryman Premier scalp on the road for the Oystermen, who beat Carshalton by the same scoreline in the previous round.

Ebbsfleet, meanwhile, have knocked out Bromley 4-1 and Gloucester City 3-0 on home soil to reach this stage of the competition.

Dover Athletic are the only other Kent club through to the last-32 and they will entertain Skrill North side Leamington.

After drawing 1-1 at East Thurrock United on Saturday, Chris Kinnear's Whites saw off the Essex outfit 3-1 in Tuesday night's replay at Crabble.

The second round ties will be played over the weekend of December 14.
